BMW and Volkswagen Take on Tesla Motors With a New U.S. Fast-Charging Network -- The Motley Fool Click bait, perhaps. These statements alway infuriate me: How fast are these "fast-charging" stations? They're not quite up to the level of the latest versions of Tesla's vaunted Superchargers. Tesla claims the Superchargers can add "up to 170 EPA-rated miles of range in as little as 30 minutes." But the new Chargepoint stations aren't bad: Chargepoint's 50 kW stations can add up to 200 miles of range per hour, while the 24 kW stations can add up to 100 miles of range per hour. Why not cite all charge rates in the same format. It would appear that the Chargepoint stations are almost as fast when Tesla is listed in "30 min increment" and Chargepoint is listed in "hour" increments.
